People have been talking about Dovetail’s Pumpkin Soup for years. While it’s not technically new, it just keeps getting better with age. Owner and chef John Fraser made a splash when he first opened his ambitious seasonal American restaurant on the Upper West Side, earning praise and a Michelin star in the process. This fall, he’s upped the ante on one of his now signature dishes. This season’s version is a luscious, yet light broth (made with pumpkin juice and whole pumpkin puree), scattered with Pomegranate Seeds, Granny Smith Apple Pearls, and Pumpernickel Croutons for crunch. The final touch is the unique addition of homemade Marshmallows, spiced with Vadouvan, a French curry blend typically made with onions, shallots, garlic and cardamom. And if you’re still craving pumpkin come dessert, order a scoop of Dovetail’s Pumpkin Ice Cream.
